    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support!

    I understand that you do not want to have two HP LaserJet Pro P1102w printer operation via USB Wired on 1 single machine with a single order of printing or the icon. I would like to help you with the configuration of this option today. Because there are two distinct Laserjet on Windows 8.1 computer printers, to do two icons impression for various devices. The best way to tell the difference between the two devices is to rename printers. Thus, when the client goes in file and print in the print dialog window, simply choose the printer name that corresponds with the device they want to print to. You can rename printers all you want. Install printers on the WSD Port wireless network would give the same result of having two copies of the printer is installed on the computer.

  • The HP software update is still my printer unable to talk to my PC with USB cable or wireless. Nightmare.

    I tried to do what I thought, it was a systematic HP software update on my printer, which has been very well. The software appears to install correctly, but then I could not connect wireless or even when I plugged a USB cable at the back. I restarted my computer and my printer several times. I retried the installation several time steps. Two hours later, I'm stuck, and I see no way to get any help from HP. At this point, I think seriously just junking my printer and switch to another brand that has his act together. Can anyone help? Of course can't do HP.


    Normally, I will not let any product for my machines automatically update. Anyway, my suggestion: using Windows restore to restore the machine back to the point before the update.

    I hope this helps.

  • Photosmart Plus B210 do not print the Photo - Vista and 7 - USB tray and wireless

    Experts!  Help, please!  HP support by phone could not find a solution.

    I bought a new Photosmart Plus B210 last month.  I am a moderately advanced computer user and have not been able to print a picture of this printer, EXCEPT when printing directly from a card inserted into the machine.

    I installed the printer on two laptops, one running Vista, the other running Windows 7.

    The problem persists if printing wireless or USB.

    The printer works perfectly as this major problem.

    Thanks in advance for your help.  If I can't make this work, I'll have to return this printer and will likely purchase another brand.


    First of all, in vista - please turn off the printer, restart your pc and to clean the print queue and turn on the printer.

    Now, make sure you select the exect for the tray paper size, that the same for the type of paper and size when printing... now see if there is a difference.

    What about win7 - what do you want to see exectly? the option is grayed out? You may see other options to select related to it?

  • Can I set up my printer with USB port and wireless?

    Yes, you can connect your printer wirelessly to the top and the USB. If you have 1 computer connected to the USB printer, you can also download the software and drivers for computer #2 and wireless connection.

    On the printer, you will need to put it on the network (router).

    If you need assistance, please be sure to ask. You can connect several computers to the wireless printer, but could only be plugged into the USB cable.

    Hope this helps everyone.

  • LaserJet P1102w, why not install it via the USB port on a second system to dual boot Windows XP/Windows XP?

    A seriously paralyzed malware on my laptop Dell Inspiron 1318 running Windows XP Professional SP3 with 3 GB of memory. Some key files have been deleted, and I can't open all .lnk files. After some research, my solution was to start from a clean format. However, I have some programs on the old system that I really need and impossible to reinstall on a new system. So, I chose to install a new WinXP as a dual boot on a separate partition (I have also a third partition that I use for user files); keep the old system for when I really need.

    After installing the new WinXP, the detector material caused my LaserJet P1102W printer install pop up box. I was busy to install other drivers at the time so I canceled the installation of the printer later. When I came back to him, he went for the bulk of the fine saves but then abruptly stopped, saying: "the printer installation failed. On the HP site, I went through all the HP printer Diagnostics steps without good results.

    I really want to get this printer working on my new system. What can I do?

  • Photosmart 7960 installed via the USB port on the PC under Win XP Pro acting as a print server

    I have a PC running Windows XP Pro, which acts as the home network file and print server.   The Photosmart 7960 is connected to this computer via a USB cable and configured to be "shared".   When I go to "Add a printer" on another PC, in Windows 7, which is also part of the same network, I can navigate to the 7960 correct, but the installation wizard is unable to find the driver for Win 7.  I still have what in the HP see basic documents that tells me how to add this shared printer on my Win 7 PC.  Looking at the support page drivers I saw that Windows 7 already has the driver.  True, but the only way, it seems that I can get to it is to connect the printer directly to Win 7 PC via a USB cable.   Any suggestions?

    Apparently, the solution is as follows.  First connect the photosmart 7960 directly to the PC running Windows 7 via USB cable network.  It will be auto-install drivers.  Reconnect the printer to the PC under XP pro server.   From the PC running Windows 7 where you have installed the printer via USB, you can go ahead and remove the photosmart 7960 from the list of printers; This will not remove the just downloaded drivers.  Next, select Add a printer, and then select 'Add a local printer' (no network).  Select 'Create New Port' and click Next.  In the next dialog box, type the name of the host server and the name of the printer.  In my case, it's \\mainserver\HP photosmart 7960. Click Next.   In the "Install the printer driver" dialog, click "Hewlett Packard" and find the 7960 in the printer list and click Next.  I was able to successfully install the printer this way.

  • * USB ports and my printer problems

    My laptop is Windows Xp edition sp2 family.

    My old HP laptop computer of 4 years has 4 USB ports. Unfortunately, 3 of the 4 ports broke physically, so I only have a single functional port.

  • Toshiba e-studio 206 does not print USB cable

    Hello! We have Toshiba e studio 206 which is installed with the usb cable.
    Official drivers for e-studio 206 granted official website (here and later - a Russian) had been installed without error, the device shows any errors as well and can be used as a copier or even scan via the usb cable.
    But when I try to print at least a test page - an error in the spooler window.

    Install the drivers, the printer as a COM-device. I read on the official website that this is normal.

    If Windows 7 (32 bit) - in the window 'Printers and devices' there is the printer itself AND a strange unknown device called TOSHIBA e Studio 206 (COM3).
    On Windows XP, it is all of the same except there is not that strange device.

    I'm sorry if I posted in the wrong forum, but given that this thing is a copier at the top (or so I think...) ...

    P.S:I tried using different USB cable - no effect. I guess, I'll try another while you wait for your kind answerrs... Thank you!


    Have you installed other printers or drivers next to Toshiba e-studio? If Yes please try to remove them and test it again.

    In addition, I would recommend to reinstall the drivers for the e-studio again. Delete the current version and restart the computer. Then install the latest version you can find on the page of Toshiba.

  • USB and wireless printing on PhotoSmart 7525

    We recently purchased a printer all-in-one PhotoSmart HP 7525.  I created the printer via a USB cable to a single computer (the main desktop computer).  The printer works perfectly in this way.

    We also have a wireless network and other devices on the network to use the HP printer.  However, the main desktop computer doesn't have wireless connectivity, it's why I connected the printer with a USB cable.  I don't want to replace Wireless USB connectivity.  I want to add wireless capabilities, so we have two options available (USB only for the desktop, wireless for iPhones, ipads and other computers on the wireless local area network).  Furthermore, I realize that we need to install the printer drivers on any PC without wire that we want to have access to the PhotoSmart printer.

    What I want to do is to leave the main computer set up exactly as it is (USB connection).  I want to put the printer on the wireless network without disturbing this set-up.  What is the best way to add this printer to our network on the main computer wireless capability wireless?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    In fact for the specific printer you can do it from the Panel as well.

    Follow these steps to connect the printer to the new network by using the Wireless Setup Wizard.
